Weekly Training Summary: July 20 to 26, 2015


I was definitely feeling the effects from my huge runs last weekend. This week started off slow and ended with a 17 km Friday evening run. My hip has been bugging me and Jesse and I headed out of town for a wedding so I took the weekend off. While away, my shoes smushed one of my toes and it blew up into an inflamed, painful mess Saturday night. It was throbbing all night and I could barely sleep. Jesse took me to Save-on-Foods when it opened at 8am to get some Tylenol and Polysporin. This seemed to help and it is feeling much better now.

Monday: 

  • Lunch run – 3 km on road.

Tuesday:

  • Evening hike – 4.2 km uphill.

Wednesday: 

Thursday: 

Friday: 

  • Evening run – 17 km on road.

Saturday: 

  • Rest day.

Sunday: 

  • Rest day.

I was hoping to reach 300 km this month but I am doubting whether I should still focus on that. I have about 60 km to go and only 5 days left. With a hip issue and my weird toe thing, it might be better to take it easy this week and hopefully be ready for a big long weekend. After that I’m on the homestretch to Squamish50 … I’ll taper for a few weeks and then it’ll be race day before I know it!

  1. Reading your training summaries is such an inspiration to me! I consider myself a runner, but I don’t have the time to put in the awesome workouts and runs that you do. Its tough to do with a family and working 50+ hours a week. I aspire to be like you one day!

    1. Aww thanks Ashley! There is only so much time in a day unfortunately! Luckily I have a 9-5 type job so I’ve got most evenings and weekends free (and lunch time). My housework & social time definitely suffer though! I hope you are still able to fit some workouts/runs into your busy schedule! 🙂
